Timothy Dore

Associate Professor of Chemistry, Science

Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi


Timothy Dore’s scientific interests lie at the interface of chemistry and biology, creating new technology to study complex biological systems, especially the brain. After graduate work in synthetic organic chemistry in Paul Wender's laboratory, he completed postdoctoral training in Roger Tsien's laboratory at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the University of California, San Diego. He was a faculty member at the University of Georgia in the United States prior to joining NYUAD in 2012.
